review by
Mike Haberfelner

Mark (Dávid Fecske) is a vlogger with a predilection for all things macabre - so when his grandparents die, apart from grieving he's also excited to lay his hands on a painting they own, The Whispering Man, a rather creepy picture that might be linked to the disappearance of his father - but for some reason it has always held a special fascination for Mark. Thing is, over the years since he has last seen the picture, this fascination has only grown, and now that he has it, he starts hearing things - much to the dismay of his brother Tommy (András Korcsmáros), his girlfriend Dora (Ágota Dunai), and his sister Anna (Marcsi Nagy) who soon feel Mark's starting to change. And none of them like it very much that he puts up more and more cameras to document everything happening. One night, while trying to figure out the secret behind the painting, Mark investigates an abandoned asylum, an excursion he returns from a changed man. He soon falls violently sick, which his loved ones attribute to the painting, and a specialist (Rob Oldfield) they call in suggests the help of an exorcist. But Mark might not be totally in agreement with this decision ...

 

Now this is a very effective little shocker, as it doesn't use its found footage approach as an excuse to being lazy in terms of storytelling and aesthetics, but it spins a rather tense yarn really using its approach to get into the mindset of its lead character, especially when he's more and more gone, and otherwise telling a fine tale of demonic possession. And good writing and a solid cast make sure the story comes to life for sure, plus the painting used in the film is really creepy.

Worth a look for sure.

 

Sounds interesting? Make sure to check out the trailer, too...
